I worked at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

GE is a diversified global company with a progressive management culture. The pay and benefits are good and the opportunities for making a market impact are there, leveraging the resources of a global firm.

Cons

If your company is acquired by GE, do not be surprised to see most leadership roles shift over the first few years to a cadre of GE managers. These new managers have been groomed through GE's leadership development programs, and will do things the standard way but they may not know much about the special needs of your business and of your customers. While this has some beneficial effects, it also can result in costly delays in driving competitive advantages in product development.

Also, realize that most growth opportunities are outside the US and many of the most exciting opportunities will be in developing markets. The days of sending US ex-pats all over the world are over- most of these new opportunities are for people who have a deep understanding of their local cultures. This is a con for US-based candidates but a pro for talent in emerging markets.

Advice to Management

Stay close to your customers. Be proud of the GE brand, but always be humble with repect to the actual experience customers have with your products and services.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Combination of salary, vacation, job flexibility, and side benefits in combination are some of the best in the industry. Work/life balance is improving a lot, and the company is starting to realize the benefits of not overworking employees. Salary is competitive, and work is challenging.

    Cons

    U.S. workforce is getting thin as outsourcing continues. Still too many meetings and politics. Compliance has taken a life of its own, with more effort on documentation than the project itself.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the real cost of outsourcing, not just the short-term gains and benefits. The overall costs in logistics, quality, and management make global outsourcing more expensive (time, quality, other) than what the basic numbers reveal.

    I have been working at GE Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Field work is great. I never could stand office environment.

    Cons

    PC environment. Pro Left. No one cares about you- only your numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Quit quitting every 2 or 3 years. Everyone quits or moves on except the field. Oh and pay your people. Quit stiffing the field on Variable comp pay.
